The Robinson student section breaks the silence as the ninth point is scored.

On Friday, Jan. 19, Robinson hosted their seventh annual Break the Silence basketball game against Wharton. The Robinson student section, decked out in purple, were hused into silence by the bundle of Knightmare members at the front of the crowd.

The evening began with the girls’ game at 6:30 p.m. which had everyone on the edge of their seats. The Wharton Wildcats were predicted to sweep because of their 18-1 record, but the Knights didn’t let them win without a fight. The game ended with a close loss of 38-41.

Knightmare Club gave out free Break the Silence shirts at 7:15 p.m. and ran out quickly. Knightmare President Mina Kuklen (’24) began the evening with a speech and introduced the Break the Silence spokesperson to explain the cause further.

“Not many people know about the global issues of domestic violence and how this problem has created issues in others’ lives. It is important to share these stories [with] people who are unaware because it allows more students to be engaged with supporting this cause,” Kuklen said.

Following the presentation, Ella Garruto (’24) and John Joura (’27) performed the national anthem on violin. The boys warmed up and the game began at 8 p.m.

The Knights had a tough start and only scored an underwhelming six points in the first period. But by the second period Dylan Russell (’24) scored the ninth point and the crowd went wild. People through streamers and held up signs filling the room with overwhelming school spirit. The Knights picked up the pace but it wasn’t enough. The game ended with another loss for Robinson 35-70.

About the Contributors
Sophie Le, Staff Writer
Sophie Le is a sophomore at Robinson, and a Staff Writer for Knight Writers. This is her first year on staff. Le joined journalism because she wanted to gain more writing experience. "I wanted to practice writing more, and I feel like this is a great opportunity to practice every week and write stories about things I like,” she said. Her goals for this year include many things involving social media and photography. "I wanted to practice writing and explore other areas of journalism." Le said. When not in class, Le is the Vice President of Congre, Social Media Manager of Knightmare and the secretary of Book Club. She chose these clubs because she wanted to be an active part of the school through the things she enjoys. "I chose French when I went to IB, book club because I love to read, I love seeing different genres and different books, and then Knightmare because I love school spirit and going to football games,” she said. Outside of school, Le's favorite extracurriculars are playing tennis, either on Robinson's varsity girl's team or on her club team, helping sew at her grandmother's alteration shop, along with shopping and thrifting. These help her calm down when stressed with her busy schedule, she explains how she enjoys making outfits. "I love shopping and thrifting, because it's my favorite hobby. It's so fun, I love putting together outfits." Le said. Le says she would like to continue in journalism throughout high school, with hopes of writing about current fashion. "I would love to write about fashion; I think definitely in the future that could be an interest." Le said. (Profile by Ryan Rolle)
Araya Stearns, Senior Staff Writer
Araya Stearns is a senior at Robinson and a senior staff writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. An essential part of Stearns is her love for sports. At Robinson, she plays both flag football and softball. She loves the flag team she's a part of, aiding her love of the sport overall. The same applies to softball, which Stearns has been involved in since her early years. "Softball, I've been playing since, like, the age of four, so meeting new people and having more friends due to softball is a really big thing for me," Stearns said. After her time at Robinson, Stearns plans to keep moving forward on the softball track, hoping to pursue the sport throughout college and strive for the pro-leagues. Wanting to stay active even after college, a career in physical therapy or training is in her sights. Besides sports, Stearns loves her share of country music. Artists like Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen are common in her everyday playlist. Like many right now, Stearns has been enjoying the new volume of "Stranger Things," eager for the new season to come out in her senior year. Dialing down on the intensity, her favorite movies are typically from Disney, considering that she's surrounded by younger siblings. She finds movies like "Luca" fun to watch by herself or with others. This year, Stearns wants to keep her focus on the sports section, mainly attending sports games and taking pictures for our galleries. She loves the atmosphere of any sports game, keeping her ambitious to improve her photography skills throughout her junior year. (Profile by Faith Rowland)
